Shawn Lauvao to Have Tough Match Against Ndamukong Suh

Lauvao is expected to play the first half with the starters, and it will be important for him to contain Suh as best as he can so Colt McCoy doesn't end up on his back, or worse, injured. Right now, all McCoy can do is have faith playing with the guys he has.

Cleveland Browns 53-Man Roster Projection (Version 2)

We have had two and a half weeks of action since my previous training camp roster projection.

I didn't post a practice squad last time, but I'll indicate a few hopefuls this time around.

Cleveland Browns Training Camp Report: Day 19 - Injuries Add Up

If you don't want to hear about injuries, then don't read today's training camp report. Three of Cleveland's key players left the field early, meaning the team could be a bit short-handed when they face the Detroit Lions on Friday.

Injuries Hurting the Depth at the Safety Position

The Cleveland Browns are quickly approaching their second preseason game, and guess which position seems to have the most issues when it comes to depth?

Former Browns RB James Davis Decides to Leave Redskins Camp

Each year, PredictionMachine.com plays the 2011 NFL Season 50,000 times before it is actually played (exactly how they do that is beyond me, but whatever). I remember seeing these in the past, and it's always fun to see what they come up with. How did the Cleveland Browns fare in their results?

Cleveland Browns Training Camp Report: Day 17 - Hardesty is Back

Hardesty Returns to Action: All eyes were on running back Montario Hardesty, who was doing something besides light jogs or standing around: he was taking part in the action. It seemed like a big step forward for Hardesty, who had been held out of contact drills for the past two weeks.

Colt McCoy and the Browns' West Coast Offense Click in 27-17 Victory Over Packers

We are just one game in to the preseason, but the results for Colt McCoy and the West Coast Offense were positive. We'll see if things can go this smooth the rest of the preseason.
